Howler's debut album America Give Up was released in January 2012. Howler later released a music video for the song. Howler spent most of 2012 in the UK promoting America Give Up, as well as stopping off in Australia, Japan and various European countries. They subsequently released the music video for the first single off of the new album, "Don't Wanna", via their Vevo channel on YouTube. On January 25, the band played The Current's 9th birthday party at First Avenue, playing new songs off World of Joy before its release.

America Give Up is a snarky, slacker-infused, PG13-rated outing of The Beach Boys. Jordan Gatesmith's voice crossovers well with garage and surf, which admittedly, isn't too different, but his baritone does help carry the album's straddling genres. Among all the snark, college humor goofiness, it makes for an album to listen to on the beach if you're that guy in the group that isn't afraid to be smug.

America Give Up. Debut from the indie rock, garage rock Minnesotan five-piece nominated by NME as one of the best new bands of 2011.

America Give Up' feels a bit of a fickle, patriotic title for a debut that seems to almost be a dig at their country. Now, it's not because Howler don't like being stateside, but simply because they have bigger fish to fry. They want success everywhere, and who can blame them, they've even taken the first active steps in the Howler Vs World battle. The Minnesota four-piece agreed a deal with London label pioneers, Rough Trade. Opener, 'Beach Sluts' starts the album as it means to go on. The noisy chorus overshadowing the summery title and laid-back, clap-hungry verses for a different kind of mash up. 'Back Of Your Neck' begins and ends with a beauty of a 50's throwback riff and a collection of 'ooohs', classically catchy. Tracks, 'Free Drunk' and 'Pythagorean Fearem' are embedded in distortion from the running punk influence.

America Give Up was titled after this pseudo-Springsteen anthem. Gatesmith told UK newspaper The Sun that it was an attempt to, "make fun of a country that tries too hard to be the biggest and best, in a somewhat unhealthy wa. More songs from Howler.

No need for America to give up when they keep producing such cool singalong bands. Kylie Jenner sparks pregnancy rumours with ‘announcement’ - but it’s not what seems. Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger given all-clear after major heart operation.
